Monday, I spent 3 hours and $1200 at the dentist to fix yet another broken tooth. So in my case, chewing is not only overrated, but can be quite expensive as well. That is why blenders are so important to me. The dead blender from the last post was replaced under warranty, and its replacement died last Friday. Both died after making only 300 smoothies. I guess their 3 year warranty is based on making only 2 per week. |
So now I am trying the Cuisinart brand for $99 with a 5 year warranty. Today was only the 3rd day of use, and I already had an accident. Near the end of making a scrumptious Pina Colada, I removed the lid to add a little more ice, and the cap fell off into the blender. Before I could shut it off, it had been chopped into itty bitty bits of plastic. So I had to pour the entire 40 ounces of blended fruit into the compost pile and wash the blender. I was able to substitute a cap from a dead blender. I was so hot and hungry after my bike ride home too!
I will still get the Hamilton Beach replaced to have a spare.
